Mealtime assistant (feeder) for seniors

Volunteers are needed to assist residents in CHSLD with their meals. Due to various impairments which can include visual, cognitive and/or other physical limitations, residents often need assistance and encouragement to eat their meals. A friendly and patient volunteer can make a positive difference with how a resident experiences this important activity of daily living. Volunteers will receive training and will always assist in the presence of nursing supervision/support. Volunteers are needed for this task on all days of the week and for any of the three regular meals (breakfast, lunch or dinner). If you have about an hour per week to offer, this is a role for you!

Chateau Ramezay

Museum guides

Ville-Marie

Our establishment Chateau Ramezay is an historic site and museum of Montreal

The "volunteer guides" have the function of animating all kinds of activities with a historical flavor.

Volunteers can either guide school groups or receive regular visitors to the Château. The involvement of the guides who receive school visits is on weekdays, from September to June, with a peak of activity from March to June.

The guides who give tours to Museum visitors generally give one day of tours per month on weekends from September to the end of June. During the summer, they are required to give at least 3 or 4 tours from July 1 to September 31. These tours are generally given between 12:00 and 4:00 p.m.

We are looking for volunteers interested in sharing a love of history with students and visitors to our beautiful city. You don’t have to be a historian or even bilingual!
All you need is a love of learning and the desire to share your knowledge with others, as well as availability a few hours per week. If you also happen to be interested in the history of Quebec and of Montréal, you’d be an ideal candidate! We offer a detailed training program after which you will be teamed up with an experienced guide until you are comfortable with the ins and outs of guiding!

Meet up with our dynamic team and register for the training session at one of our “Open house”.
